LAKEWOOD -- The first three rounds of the Shore Conference Tournament were no contest for Rumson-Fair Haven's girls lacrosse team. Neither was the championship game.

The Bulldogs completed a dominant run to their fifth consecutive SCT crown by beating Freehold Township, 17-6, on Thursday afternoon at Georgian Court University. Brittany Bruno scored six goals with one assist to lead the offensive output while Kyra Weiner and Liz Scarrone each scored three times. Scarrone also had three assists to reach 100 assists for her career.

Rumson won every game in the tournament by at least 10 goals. The Bulldogs now have six SCT titles overall and join Shore as the only programs to win five straight Shore Conference Tournament titles. Rumson also has an 83-game winning streak against Shore Conference teams dating back to 2012.

Rumson led 11-5 at halftime and held Freehold Township to only one goal in the second half thanks to strong defensive play by Caitie Clark, McKenna Maguire, Kily Bedell and Kylie Wise. Gill Curran won 17 of 24 draws and also had two goals and one assist. Mel Guido added two goals and two assists and Taite Santos scored once.

Michelle Pascrell scored four goals to lead Freehold Township, which was making its first appearance in an SCT final. Cai Martin and Kirsten Murphy scored once. Both of the Patriots' losses this season have come to Rumson.
